    I like the use of pigeon sounds for transitions. I really enjoyed the drawings. I think they added a lot to the video and supported the hypothesis of the research paper. I like and understood the simplified figure. I’ve always wondered about the flocks of birds I see migrating… Good job!

  2. Bernal Nicolas says:

    The video was informative and well presented.

  3. Bernal Nicolas says:

    The video was informative and well presented.However, it went over the time limit.

  4. Elisabet Ruiz-Torres says:

    The video was informative and the speakers were clearly understood. I enjoyed the simplified terms used that made it easier to understand the research conducted. Also the pigeon sounds used for the transitions were a nice touch.

  5. Calhoun Ciandra says:

    This video was very informative; therefore, I learned a great amount of information on a topic I knew nothing about. I really appreciated the construction of this video. I liked how pigeon sounds were utilized as transition sounds, how still images were included, how hand drawn illustrations were put to use, and how titles were inputed so the viewer knew what was going to presented next.

  6. Groves Daniel says:

    I like how each group member used a different form of presentation. It’s a shame that the experiment didn’t give any significant results, but that should pave the way to better experiments on the subject.

  7. Schulz Laura says:

    The pigeon noises were a really funny touch. Also, I like the comedic aspect of the script and how you gave speech bubbles to the pigeons. Very cool!

  8. Andrew Matson says:

    I enjoyed the pigeon noises used for transitions and the still images made the video easier to understand. The titles for each section of the presentation were also helpful. Well done!

  9. Adithi Anil says:

    The audio was a little hard to hear at times, but the division of the video into sections and the visuals made it easy to follow along and learn about the experiment.

  10. Murray Hannah says:

    Overall this was a fairly good video. However, the video did go almost two minutes over the time limit and there were points where some dialogue could be taken out to solve this issue. But, the speech was not too fast and I could clearly understand everything being said. I also enjoyed all the different ways that the different group members presented their part of the project.

  11. Moye Lauren says:

    This was a little long, but very thorough. The information was presented well and the visuals were very engaging. Good job!

  12. Robang Alicia says:

    Drawings used were engaging. The humor made this video entertaining! Some transitions were awkward, though, and changes in video quality was also a bit distracting. A lot of interesting information was provided and the connections made to evolution and behavioral studies were well-thought out.

  13. Anum Ul-Haque says:

    The video was great! I liked the pigeon sound transitions and the visuals, as they contributed to the overall theme. Great job!

  14. Whitt Sabrina says:

    Illustrations were entertaining and easy to follow. The commentary was excellent in that it was clear and easy to understand. I appreciate how some vocabulary was defined, so that the audience could follow the video more easily. I really liked the pigeon sounds during transitions! Great job!

  15. Zibitt Meira says:

    I found the information really well presented and easy to follow. The topics were well organized and everything flowed which made it easy to understand. The video as a whole was really interesting and I really enjoyed it. Good job!

  16. Filmer Andres says:

    Overall the video was good. The information was easy to understand. The audio quality was too different when different speakers talked. I also did not like the background change to much when a new drawer started.

  17. Aldrete Carlos says:

    I found this video to be very informative. The information presented was distilled to an easy to understand level with both the content and the use of illustrations. Well done!

  18. Newville Grace says:

    I liked that there was always something new to look at. It was also very easy to follow along due to how each section was specifically stated before information was given about it. It seemed as though the entire group contributed in not only speaking, but drawing which is awesome!

  19. Bhakhri Arohi says:

    This video was a little long but understandable and easy to follow. I appreciate the visuals and photos and think that they did help present the information well. I would maybe recommend just talking a little bit louder, but the tone is great and not monotonous.

  21. Grande Guillermo says:

    The video was very thorough and informative, and was able to clearly convey the methods and findings of the experiment in its totality. I found the pigeon transition to be very creative, and the visuals aided in illustrating the narration. Well done!

  22. mcw0805 says:

    The video was very informative and easy to follow. The visuals were excellent and flowed well with the audio. However, I would’ve used a clean sheets of papers for the drawings for better presentation.

  23. Li Danny says:

    The video was well organized and easy to follow. The pigeon noise was a nice addition to indicate the transition from one section to another. The narration was done at a nice pace and went very well with the drawings. Overall, the video was well done.

  24. Mohammad Awan says:

    Nice job in presenting the idea. I thought it could have been a little more aesthetically appealing, but overall it was great.

  25. Muenchen Alexandrea says:

    The pigeon noise transitions and humor in the drawings made the video entertaining to watch despite the length. The narration was paced well and the content was easy to follow. Some narrators were more engaging than others but overall good job.

  26. Jacqueline says:

    I like the pigeon noises in the transitions, and I like how you had transitions to make what you were discussing clear. This sounds like a very interesting experiment and you explained it well. It was hard to see some of the drawings, though, because of lighting. A marker might have been better.

  27. Reeves Devon says:

    This video was a little fast paced in the beginning but leveled out nicely. The visuals were good and some were really funny. The color coding in the approach section was a good touch. I liked the mixed media and sound effects. Overall, good job!

  28. Iyengar Mayuri says:

    Conveyed your information in a very easy-to-follow manner, and the narrator’s voice is engaging throughout the entire video. The cartoon images you included were cute and funny as well! I feel like I am well informed on this topic after watching this video, so great job!

  29. Smith Jaeiza says:

    I like how you outlined the video, so the information was easy to follow. The visuals kept me interested in the subject manner.

    Great video.The visuals were engaging and made the presentation easy to follow. I really liked the transitions (I though the addition of pigeon noises was very creative). Overall this video was well done.

  31. Reynolds Kirsten says:

    The information was presented well, and the drawings as well as the pictures helped me to understand the methods in the experiment. The color coding used when drawing the experimental groups helped greatly! The only thing I would change about the video is maybe adding some background music to keep your audience engaged, and maybe introducing some excitement into the video! It seemed a bit monotone at times; overall, the video was good! Well done!

  32. Lucas Council says:

    What an awesome video. There’s nothing I would change; 5/5 stars! The audio was clear, and the pictures were very funny.

  33. Hoey Maeve says:

    The visuals were clear and helpful with following along with the audio. The speakers explained the topics well, too. The video was just a little long and some detail could have been removed to shorten the video length, but overall, well done!

  34. Bresch Troy says:

    The video went a little too long; however, it was very informative. The combination of illustrations, pictures, and animations made the video very interesting to watch.

  35. Taylor Micah says:

    This video is clearly presented and easy to understand, but with how long it went over time, I feel like some of the dialogue could definitely be cut while still getting the message across.

  36. Lin Min says:

    The video was very informative and entertaining, especially the transition pigeon sounds. Great job!

  37. Beruk Samson says:

    This was a very informative video! The use of the timelapsed drawings was a very clever and useful way to represent what was being discussed in a easily understandable manner. I was a little thrown off by the pigeon sounds at first but I get it now; good job pigeoneers.

  38. Kulkarni Amrut says:

    I had this paper as well, and you presented the info really well!

  39. Likes Taisha says:

    This video was was very structured and thorough. There were times when it cut off in the middle of a word. I liked the design of your video. You did a good job.

  40. Bonitatibus Rachael says:

    Since my group had the same research paper, I really appreciate how well this information was presented. There were a lot of difficult terms to explain and the simple language you used really helped your audience understand the topic. Well done!

  41. Irondi Ogechi says:

    Really loved the transforming pigeon sounds! Great video.

  42. Sills Ann-Marie says:

    Love the sound effects (haha). However, the superfluous dialogue and these fun transitions made the video go nearly two minutes over time. Despite the originality of this video, there might have been too much going on. However, the content was extensive and very informative. Good job!

  43. Wah Katie says:

    i personally found this video to be extremely informative. The layout of the video was also very impressive, and the bird sounds that were used for transitions was also very interesting. The still images made the video a little boring at times, but the hand drawn images were great and the titles that were presented so we knew what was going to be talked about next really helped keep the video clear and organized.

  44. Ferguson David says:

    Overall the video was interesting. The active drawing of the diagrams allowed for the concepts to be understood and the animation contributed to conveying them.
